I've noticed the guidance panel has disappeared (the one that was minimal) and the songs for turning on/off the guidance panel have no effect.

thank for squashing these bugs ! :-)

I haven't changed the location of locus or it's directories since several updates ago. now, locus complains my filesystem is read only. the only way to fix this is to go into device administrators section and disallow then allow locus. then it will start normally.

this only started happening with the last two updates.


happens anytime I try to export a long track. this track is created from a LOT of tracks that were merged into one (using locus merge function) , ending with 7,500+ miles of tracks to display.

it will crash /hang when trying to display that merged track, or exporting. I can see the statistics, but that is all.

any hints/help ?

(the reason for merging all these tracks is because I'm trying to find a away report ALL of my tracks to get a running total)

Troubles & Questions / Mass export of all tracks?
« on: June 07, 2018, 18:41:22 »
I have a large database (100+mb) of tracks and waypoints. I would love to be able to export ALL of them, from all the sub directories, into similarly named directories. there are times I want to wipe out the database and start new, but expiring all the tracks would be very time consuming.

Troubles & Questions / touching map preview no longer works...
« on: June 05, 2018, 15:14:06 »
when viewing a track information, touching the map preview at the top no longer allowed for left/right panning, nor does touching it once return to the main map with track centered as it used to.

this is locus 3.31.0

Troubles & Questions / Geo tagged photos layer is broken ?
« on: February 06, 2018, 13:51:03 »
I've added both internal and external dcim directories to locus , but no images are showing when I enable the photo option in layers.

Is it broken in 3.29.1 ?

Thank you !

Troubles & Questions / points near me
« on: January 14, 2018, 14:25:01 »
using the points near me button, the "turn on eyeball" area of touch is so small that I often instead select the "show info" pane.

could you increase the area of the "turn on eyeball" so that turning on several waypoints was an easier process, and fewer accidental options would happen?

Troubles & Questions / POI search crash
« on: May 19, 2016, 14:00:09 »
Search POI >> touch poi returned from search >> crash

repeatable always.
'view' POI = no crash
'selecting' POI = crash

most recent locus, android 4.1.2

Troubles & Questions / Offline map database errors ?
« on: October 04, 2015, 18:51:18 »
Yesterday I attempted to switch between 3-4 offline map sources which have worked well in the past. The phone slowed down considerably, and I got the same error "Map blah database problem!" in red, but I couldn't record the exact error problem.

It did this 3-4 times, but after selecting that map again, it corrected , after I rebooted the phone. Thankfully, my track recording wasn't effected by this as I was stationary at the time.

Is there a log I can send you about the problem, or a known way to fix the error in the future ?

thanks :D

Wishlist / Fuel / Milage Gauge ?
« on: September 09, 2015, 13:15:28 »
I use locus for a lot of off road enduro. It would be great if it were possible to have a fuel gauge, that could be reset each time I filled up again.  What I do now is record from the start, and start a new track with each fillup, and use a custom dashboard to show
Track Distance (full)
GPS coordinates (on one line)

but it would be really nice to have a fuel gauge that showed miles till reserve, or miles covered.

Any interest ? thanks !

Navigation & Guidance / navigate route?
« on: May 08, 2015, 21:34:57 »
i thought in the past that locus would start with the beginning of a route? today  i loaded a rope, and tried to navigate to the beginning, but locus is pointing me to almost the end every time?

Tools / Live Tracking with Spotwalla - is it possible ?
« on: March 30, 2015, 20:01:29 »
I've been watching BubblerGPS' progress for a little while. It's the application that uplaods current locations to Spotwalla. I've also been watching MapMyTracks progress too. They're working fairly well, and would be a great addition to the functionality of Locus.

The UI for setting up Live Tracking in Oruxmaps is via email, and would really be welcomed (for me) if it were part of Locus setups for Live Tracking.

Would this be possible, or has it been done already and I just need to input server and GET values ?

Thanks ! :)

I have backup manager turned on, for months now.

I have two Locus directories:
phone storage /mnt/sdcard/Locus


external sdcard (micro sdcard) storage /mnt/ext_sdcard/Locus

I tried to recover from both the /mnt/sdcard/Locus and the /mnt/ext/sdcard/Locus backups, but neither of them restored my waypoints  or tracks i've recorded over the years. The only way I got the data back was to WifiDirect the entire /mnt/sdcard/Locus directory from another phone, which I normally sync the directories between.

Have I misunderstood the purpose of Locus Autobackup ?
Can, or does it backup waypoints and tracks, or should I be zipping the entire ~/Locus directory to a safe place weekly ?

If you would like to provide me the exact location of, and how to restore, the waypoint/tracks databases I would really appreciate that.

Thanks !

(and sorry for the long read) :)
